The timing of the Big Bash League means that Australian players are especially well positioned to leave an impression ahead of the auction with names like Glenn Maxwell and Shane Watson being considered alongside more left-field selections like D'Arcy Short. Dwayne Bravo, Carlos Brathwaite, Evin Lewis and Jason Holder will add the Caribbean flavour to the league. Lasith Malinga, captain Angelo Mathews, the exciting Niroshan Dickwella, and Thisara Perera will be the representatives of Sri Lanka.

Among the uncapped players, Baroda all-rounders Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda have selected ₹40 lakh, the highest for an uncapped player, as their base price.

South African players listed for the auction include Hashim Amla, Faf du Plesis, Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel.

The Blackcaps have captain Kane Williamson, opener Colin Munro and Tom Latham in the auction.
